Details

Operation Frankton, in December 1942, was probably the most audacious raid of the Second World War. The twelve British commandos who infiltrated Bordeaux’s dockyards in canoes, or ‘cockles’, knew they were facing near certain death; but as Churchill acknowledged, their success in sabotaging German equipment helped shorten the war. This history explores the background and planning of the mission, as well as the miscommunication and Admiralty politicking that hampered it.
